How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core
Waiting, paranoid about the depth of loneliness inside
Till you find me again and lead me back to you
Crying yet this emptiness won’t let it come through. … More Is your love strong enough to bring me to life?
Someone once asked me, ‘why penguin?’
And I asked, ‘why not?’
‘But I really want to know’
So I said, ‘Google it’.
He comes back days later and says,
‘Now I understand the mystery that is you a little better’.
‘Tell me’, I said.
‘It’s a metaphor, that’s why you don’t usually perform the way people expect you to. You’re spontaneous and owing no explanations. And even though you want to believe that you’re conventional, there’s nothing conforming about you. And those sharp contrast colors of the penguin signify this unconventional nature. On one hand, you can be tough. On the other, you can be loving’.
‘Hmm’, I looked uninterested.
I didn’t research all of those to know I liked the unique love of the penguins. Their loyalty through a lifetime endeared me. I didn’t need his lecture too.
‘And if you haven’t loved, let me prove to you that I’m worth your loyalty’, he said.
‘But I’m already happily spoken for’.
‘Touché’. … More Penguin
The thought of being a wedding guest got me thinking about the trending craze with wedding guests now, especially with the outrageous attires they wear. Girls are not smiling o. At all! Whether as the bride or a wedding guest, everyone just wants to dress to impress and that’s putting it lightly. From the face-beat to total transformation, ladies look unrecognizable when it comes to attending weddings. Well, for those still single, perhaps it’s a trending gimmick to snatch off eligible bachelors. But the craze is fast getting out of hand. … More It’s wedding season! What are you wearing?
I was watching Laura Ikeji’s dance post on Instagram the other day and my thoughts were not coordinated at first. A woman loves to showcase her children and celebrate her love for them, regardless of the amazing love she had or has for her husband from the beginning of their relationship. So if the woman is celebrating herself and her children, who is celebrating the husband? … More Women have been told they are their man’s better half. But what does that really mean?
It’s so easy to take a look in the mirror and say to yourself, ‘the one who will marry me will be very lucky’. I’ve done it before. Well, I still think that the one who married me is lucky indeed but really, at first glance, I am very unassuming. I can cook, sew, mend, and care for babies. I’m patient, I’m kind and all those things a lot of people thought I was not when I was in Uni especially and afterward. They were probably seeing the surface side to me – the enigmatic beauty, and nothing more.
Men love that unattainable side to a woman. Well, that’s until they attain the woman and they look forward to the next unattainable “thing”. But what makes a man stay with a woman, perhaps, after that first mystery is unveiled? Beyond the beauty, carriage and packaging, should be a wife-material if you’re actually looking to be married sometime in the future. … More While you’re waiting for that Mr. Right,
I put my hand in yours
And feel the serenity just by this touch
Anywhere but your eyes is where I want to stare
It will only be the undoing of the heavy emotions inside
Just like a glove, perfectly fit
If only for this moment. … More Fit like a glove
It’s a new week but I want to imagine love is still in the way. With Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s wedding last week Thursday to Banky W and Adesuwa Etomi’s wedding on Sunday, I enjoyed every bit of it from Instagram like many others. Smiles. I guess it just goes to show, for those still expecting that wedding miracle that it isn’t over for the year. After all, it is the season of wedding bells. I hope yours’ will be one of those we’ll hear before 2017 is done.
But speaking of weddings, we tend to get carried away with that one day event most times as opposed to putting preparations and plans unto the forever after. Don’t get me wrong – I love weddings. I’ve loved weddings since I was my Dad’s date to a wedding ceremony sometime in 1996. I thought the bride looked like an angel and the happiest woman I ever saw and secretly I prayed the couple will remain happy forever. … More Don’t plan a wedding, Plan a marriage
Working a 10-hour day is not the same as being “busy.” If you’re truly putting in 10-hour days, it should be because the work you’re currently doing requires you to be there for exactly ten hours.
“Busy” does not guarantee that you are making strides and growing your business.
“Busy” means you are probably doing a lot of work you shouldn’t be doing in the first place.
“Busy” means you secretly want recognition for your efforts, or for someone to commend you for your “hustle.”
“Busy” means there is a good chance you’ve let things get out of control.
The reality is this: succeeding entrepreneurs are rarely “busy.” Sure, there are seasons of their business where “busy” describes their current circumstances. But there’s a 0% chance they are sitting next to you telling you about it during those periods of time. Chances are they are some place off the grid getting things done. … More “Busy” Is Not a Badge of Honor, It’s what’s killing your dreams
Life … Survival … Living … Making a difference.
Life is for the living and living is making a difference.
Survival is an option but should it be at a cost?
To live is to fulfil purpose,
To live truly is to appreciate the little things,
To live completely is to make time to smell the roses.
For what is life without beauty, love and justice? … More The desire to truly live
I never knew how much I love you really
Until I wished I didn’t at all
And yet you wouldn’t get out of my head.
But you’re a man with few words.
You say your words only when it matters most.
So when you said, “I’m here to stay”
That’s all I want to remember. … More “I’m here to stay”
